On the one hand, I feel totally cheated because tonight's episode of Justice League turned out to actually be an episode of Batman Beyond, and Batman Beyond kinda sucks balls.

On the other hand, it included the line "Getting hold of Bruce's DNA wasn't difficult, he was leaving it all over town.  ... not even remotely what I meant."

And for once, the TV didn't pander to idiocy - there were no raised eyebrows, there was no laugh track, there was no video emphasis... you just had to catch it.  I like that.

Indeed. Emily roared.

I will say this, at least they tied up Batman Beyond instead of just leaving it open ended.

Well this was supposed to be the "last ep" of Justice League and rather DC Animation altogether. McDuffie said that it all started with Batman so he wanted it to end with him.

Fortunately CN, isn't too stupid and noticed that Justice League and Teen Titans is one of their shows with some major ratings. So luckily we get another season of both come Fall.

Justice League was nothing short of fucking brilliant; it's easily the best non-joke material CN has aired, and I'd probably say the best non-joke animated material ever to come out of non-Japanese circles as well.

JLU has been more hit-and-miss, but I sure as hell still prefer it to no Justice League at all.

Whoever would have thought something so good would have come out of, for christ's sakes, DC Comics?

You, sir, are mad. Batman Beyond (at least the first two seasons) was stellar. And have a little faith. DC was also the source of Alan Moore's utterly brilliant run on Swamp Thing... which was almost singlehandedly responsible for the final elimination of the CCA.

You know what I don't understand....why can't Marvel be this good?
